    I only do water changes for all my Africans with buffered water ... way less shock when I do that and better breeding success too!

    I keep most of my breeding groups in biotope tanks. I move pairs or breeding groups to special tanks to spawn and raise fry. I also take full advantage of Ziss & Marina water circulating breeder boxes. African Cichlids are what I breed mostly but have gotten more interested in catfish - corys & BN plecos in the past 12 months.

    I do but my water is alkaline ph 8.8 and hard. I still add some Seachem salts and trace elements.

    In that case I think the trace elements in the salts maybe all you need and dechlorinator if your water is chlorinated.

    You should the hardness though I run my tanks about 250 TDS ...
